Three day challenge hike?

Hi guys,

After nearly 3 years off serious training (sickness in family, marriage) I'm pulling my finger out and doing a 90 day fitness challenge. 90 continuous days of grim workouts and no booze.

I want to put more emphasis on "adventure training" than gym time which I find a little sterile. I've already got some nice stuff like a kayak and scuba gear along with a wagon to get where it's pretty.

Cut to the chase. I want to end my 90 days with a 3 day, very arduous trek through mountains. I'm including bergen/hill training in the challenge so I'll be ready.

Can anyone recommend a mountain route, ideally a ridge walk that might fit the bill? A circular route that would take me back to my car would be the jewel in the crown!

Thanks in advance for any help with the project.

Take it easy ^^

You should go to Seoraksan park. There are some pretty steep peaks there. Dinosaur ridge is a long and tough hike. Plus are some shelters if you want to do a multiday hike. Just dont go on a weekend. It will be madness.

Hi Patrick,

I did a search on Dinosaur ridge and it looks awesome and ideal for what I'd originally planned.

I've been doing some hill training with a 55lb pack and I've come to the sad conclusion that my knees won't let me do it. Being 46 isn't the same as being 18

I do appreciate the tip and I'll try to make it this season with just a regular day pack (which my knees don't seem to mind).
